Sometimes Click action is not received on the indented element

I am using Cucumber+Page-Object+Appium+Android device. Sometimes the click action on a button or link or any other element is not performed on that element instead it clicks on some other element (either inside or above or below it).
But some times the click action is performed on the exact element without error.
I could not trace out the reason for this issue.
I tried xpath, id, class name etc for that element, but nothing is working.

this is the error log :

info: Responding to client with error: {“status”:13,“value”:{“message”:“An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command.”,“origValue”:“unknown error: Element is not clickable at point (-10003, -99995)\n (Session info: chrome=40.0.2214.109)\n (Driver info: chromedriver=2.9.248315,platform=Windows NT 6.2 x86_64)”},“sessionId”:“99a82b1cb4fc3a17a823aa4143d0d35c”}

Kindly help me out in solving this problem.


It means, that element simply is not visible (out of frame or just didin’t load).
Before clicking, try to test element’s visibility.
For instance, on Ruby:

p element.displayed?

On Java it would be:
